June 1, 2013 - Hackathon for designers and developers at Scholars Academy -
The Rockaway Civic Hack Day will be themed around building tools and apps for emergency preparedness and response. This includes developing tools for the community and government to collaborate on rebuilding after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. The Rockaway event is run by Rockaway Help with sponsorship from Mozilla and The New York Community Trust.
At the end of April, we held a community design workshop at the MoMA VW Dome 2 to identify Sandy-related problems and brainstorm design and tech-based solutions in advance of the main event. Here are some photos from that event.
We are planning to provide transportation from Brooklyn and/or Manhattan, plus plenty of food. We will send info on those options to participants soon.
